Re: belt and tensioner
Lets see what we can do. wrap the belt around the tub assy. the little white roller w/ metal arm (called the tension pulley) needs to be installed .there should be a few holes directly under the motor pulley on floor of unit.two sets of holes you wanna use the set to the rear of unit. insert the prongs into the left rear **** and then pull the roller portion to the right.(it should hook the back prongs of idler into the rt side holes. tension holds this into position so it will fall out if you let go) theres an opening in the metal under the roller mounts, e**ugh room to slide the belt through.heres how it works, install the idler as described above, feed the belt through the opening in the idler from the left and under roller through hole pull the roller and pulley hard to the right.(its springy and as long as installed correctly ** worry of popping out) and loop around the motor pulley.let go of the pulley. and the belt should remain tensioned. it will only go on on way. GOOD LUCK

okay get the belt around the motor shaft and get the spring clip into its position tab into the bottom of the dryer, the belt goes up and over it by pushing either up or down on the metal piece, the metal piece acts as a spring tensioner for the belt, you may have to either bend it up or down to get it positioned correctly..(the last pic)
Im guessing that the belt is already broken. If so first take the two screws that are exsposed after you remove the lint trap. Next use a flat bade screw driver and insert it in the seam between the front and top approximately 2 inches in from the side. There is a spring clip 2 inches in on each side you have to trip by shoving the screwdriver in about 1 1/4 inches. The easiest way is to tap them with a hammer. (pry upward on the top and lift it all the way up it will be hinged on the back. Now looking down each front corner you will see a 5/16 screw approximately 8 inches down from the top. Remove these screws and the front can be tilted outward and lifted straight up. You will see a door switch and wires attached to the front remove the wires. Set the front aside and out of your way. (if you are a very flexable person you can replace the belt from the front but us normal human beings have to remove the back) Next go to the back and remove the back panel there are several 5/16 hex head screws around the outside edge of the back panel remove them and set the back panel aside. Inside on the bottom left side as you face the back of the dryer you will see a motor and a tensioner. The tensioner may still be in place it goes in a slot in the bottom of the dryer next to the pulley on the motor. Remove the old belt it usually is laying in the bottom. Put the new belt on the drum by putting it around the drum from the front. The belt goes around the drum across the pully on the motor with the tensioner and its pully putting tension of the belt to take up any slack. Then just put everything back in reverse order. Make sure the tensioner pully rotates smoothly if it does not this can cause your belt to break or usually get thrown off the pully. Remember to unplug your dryer before starting and clean the excess lint out of the bottom of the dryer as a good prevention to other problems. I hope this helps
You have to practically completely disassemble the dryer and remove the drum. If you can't figure it out, you should call an expert. Sometimes getting it apart isn't bad, it's putting it all back together that gets you. ;-)
the belt goes through a tensioner which fastenes to the floor in a set of slots. Get the belt through that tensioner then around the motor pulley. Put the drum on the wheels in the back, lift the front (you need a helper) and put the front back on and fasten, replace the top.
Much easier to say it than to do it ... but you got this far, I have faith you can finish the job.
The tensioner wheel needs to push on the back (the flat side) of the belt. It is a bit difficult to describe, but the way I do it is to loop the belt around the drum and motor pulley only (it will be very loose, but do it as though it wouldn't need the tensioner) then pull back the tensioner pulley and seat it to the back of the belt, so that when you release it, it removes all the slack.
Sorry I don't have a diagram I can direct you to. It is a bit confusing at first, but once you get it, you will be amazed at how simple it is.
take out phillips screw by lint screen. pull top panel towards you, lift top. remove two 5/16 inch screws on inside of front panel. undo door switch plug on right side at top of inside panel. pull panel up and remove. to remove belt push tension pulley to right and pull belt off. reverse to put back together
